Hector Bremner, the NPA councillor so conflicted that even the NPA won’t have him any more, has formed his own municipal political party which he calls Yes Vancouver.
A number of problems are already obvious with this party which is partly ego-driven and partly a front for the Rich Coleman side of the BC Liberal Party (yes, the same Rich Coleman who is currently hiding from the media who want to question him about money laundering):
- First, there is already a fine local organization called Yes Vancouver. It is a non-profit which raises money for Dress For Success. They are non-partisan and support no political party;
- Second, people searching quite reasonably for YesVancouver.com actually get taken to a website for a Toronto Real Estate firm; ironic as Bremner’s “party” favours build build build as the only solution to our problems.
So, these folks who want to run our City after the next election cannot do a simple name search for their party, and cannot do a simple web search for suitable urls. Imagine the chaos if we want them to do something that actually takes some thought?
Finally, a question we need to keep asking Bremner whenever he puts his head above the wall: during his council campaign last year he promised to donate his Council salary to a worthy charity. Did he do that? And if so, what organization was favoured with the donation?
We need to send a resounding NO to these wannabes.
